Egypt is unique is that high income earners do not have access to the lower tax brackets. On a scaled basis, as income increases past certain points, access to each of the lower tax brackets goes away until only the highest 2 tax brackets remain. The end result is that high income earners pay more in income tax.
A standard deduction in the form of an annual salary tax exemption exists to provide some tax relief. Additionally, the first tax bracket is set to 0% so there's also some relief there as well. Social security contributions are also fully tax deductible.
Other deductions may exist depending on your situation. Some may include deductions for certain business expenses, insurance expenses, insurance contributions. That being said, there are no deductions related to family and dependents.
Social Security in Egypt
Contributions to social security are shared between employers and employees with the former facing higher rates. Both see fixed flat rates.
The determination of social security premiums include a maximum cap on income applicable for contribution while those with an income under a certain amount do not have to contribute at all.

Individuals who are considered residents for tax purposes are subject to tax on their worldwide income while non-residents are subject to tax on only income earned in Egypt.

Some include whether or not an individual has a permanent home in Egypt and whether or not an individual has stayed in Egypt for over 183 days within a 12 month period, among others.
